I lived in Manhattan when Dinkins was the city's mayor. Any present-day New Yorker who remembers what that was like should have every reason to dread a return to Democrat control of Gracie Mansion. And by "that", I mean: rampant crime, drugs sold openly in city parks, garbage-strewn streets and alleys, ubiquitous beggars and bums, subways with no heat in the winter and no air conditioning in the summer, all stinking and crawling with vermin. I couldn't get out of there fast enough.
We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH

Smart people jumped that sinking ship long ago.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

For those who don't know, and the article doesn't mention, DiBlasio was a top aide in the Dinkins administration, and had a front row seat to Crown Heights riot but downplayed his role:

DiBlasio was being discussed on Pittsburgh radio host Jim Quinn's show this morning, and it's pretty scary. He's a classic Alinskyite and Manchurian candidate, it seems.
